Two weekends ago I attended the IAML (UK & Irl) annual study weekend, which you may recall me plugging in my previous post about music libraries. I went to represent Leeds College of Music and the Music Libraries Trust. I also had more jobs to do this year, namely reading reports for the College and MLT and also meeting all the MLT bursary winners, of whom there were 10!
It was another great weekend with highlights including a tour of the new Library of Birmingham, updates on other new libraries (Birmingham University, The Hive, Manchester Central Library) and thinking about digital technologies – the impacts, opportunities and various projects. I will blog more in depth at some point but in the meantime you can read two posts I’ve done for the IAML (UK & Irl) blog and a multitude of others by various contributors!
Blog 1 on the Academic Music Librarians seminar
Blog 2 on the ‘New Libraries – what can we learn?’ sessions
